Our Little Man

16 posts in this topic

My wife and I were lucky to have our first child this past week. There were some initial issues that landed our little guy in a neonatal intensive care unit. Despite an inauspicious start, our little guy is home and healthy (thank God for modern medicine).

Hooked up and monitored

That's great news, Michael. Big congrats to all three of you! Sure like the one that makes it look like the baby is part of the Blue Man Crew. gringrin

Glad to hear all is well. Not to mention, now you'll have picture subjects for many, many years to come. gringrin

Thanks for all of the well wishes. He's already proving to be quite entertaining (and a decent amount of work as well). I'm sure he'll be sick of being in front of the camera by a young age, but I'm hoping he won't mind picking one up!

X-

He was born via Cesarian at 38 weeks. He was 8 lbs. 4 oz. at birth and 19" long.

Love your photos!

I have a new one on the way, our first, scheduled to arrive the second week of December.

Never knew how exciting the whole process was until I stepped into it.

Plenty of my friends/coworkers have suggested that I will have one of the most photographed babies on the planet... not sure about that, but I am sure there will be a few, few hundred.... maybe a few thousand before it is all said and done.

Thanks for sharing such an intimate moment.

    • Watch your City Ordinances.  Some city's require a back-flow preventor, and it can be VERY expensive. I have both the battery backup, and the water driven sump pumps in my pit--all at different elevations, and feel very confident. When the water comes up, and the power goes out, the battery backup starts working.  After that the water driven sump pump will kick in.  The water driven pump will keep pumping until the power is restored and the main pump returns everything to normal. There is always water pressure in a power outage (from the tower).  Cities keep the tower full for fire protection
    • So proud of my 93 year old dad.  It's getting tougher and tougher just getting him out there, but he still knows what to do once there.    
    • I still gotta tag Moose! I'm going for a Tom only!!   (Personal thing) is ,,, I want to do it with my bow
    • Shaggy parasols are coming up in the shade garden again. Yum.  
    • VTX129 has a great point on nothing smaller than 9". I have a HB 998Ci HD unit. The bottom features that I can pick up are incredible- however I sometimes have a problem picking fish up on it. I have tried to keep my SI width narrower to help ID fish. Overall fantastic tool. The hard to soft transitions are easy to see as are rocks and so forth. On the HB units the larger screened ones come with the High Def transducer.  The smaller units come with a compact transducer. You can find some great prices on models that are being phased out - but they also will quit repairing those units sooner as well. Trade off's. Check out Universal Mania and some others online for pricing. Bass Boat central has a lot of info under Humminbird and Lawrance topics.   Good luck   Steve
    • CM I agree...and Chicago seems to find those diamonds in the rough...not sure how their AHL team is or if they have more of these "sleepers" coming up from somewhere but I bet they are right back in the finals within a 2-3 years with or without Q.   Another article that came in last night on Fletch/Wild http://nhl.nbcsports.com/2017/04/25/wild-exit-early-fletcher-stays-positive-a-familiar-refrain-in-minnesota/  You might have to Cut/Paste
    • Same have to give them a try once they come out.
    • Can't wait to test that Sprinker. 
    • lots coming thru for a couple days now.  had fun whistling with a couple yesturday. 
    • I wasn't able to catch it live and when I tried finding it after the fact it wouldn't play on my laptop for some reason. I do admire Bowman for being visibly ticked about their early exit, but I think that may get pushed a little too far. You tick off Q and he might just walk out the door. Bowman just fired one of his buddies and Q isn't too happy about it. We will see how that plays out. I think the Hawks are in a tougher position cap-wise than the Wild and have been for a few years. The difference is they had been getting no-name guys to emerge and contribute. They could be on a very slippery slope in Chi-town. We will see how that plays out.
